Title: Speechless

Summary: In another world Ian wound up in the hospital
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ

Always a quip, a bit of snark, some sort of commentary... But now Colby's mute, speechless.

Stepping into the ICU, the shock of reality steals his voice. Grief and sadness weigh heavy on him, pulling him towards the unforgiving earth.

He makes it to Ian's bedside, mesmerized by each breath that delivers proof of life, that fools him into thinking he'll be fine.

But he won't.

He'll live, but he'll never walk again.

At the memory of the doctor's words Colby's legs fail him and he crumples into a chair.

His hero has fallen to earth.

There are no words.

I guess this means I really have to decide if this makes a series with How Not to Wake A Sniper or His Boyfriend and Much Impressed by Second Best.

I'd normally make it a series in a heartbeat, but I already have a slew of Ian/Colby series clamoring for my attention in terms of sequels: Wilderness Bound, Air, Bravo, Strongroom... And that's just one pairing in a fandom filled with good pairings to write! /headdesk/

...and you have left me...speechless...

That was...haunting and devastating and just so...yeah...

His hero has fallen to earth.

There are no words.

'Nuff said.

And for what it's worth, I vote for a series. Not because I think you need more to write for these two, because lord knows I'd be happy with a sequel to any of your Ian/Colby stories. But this is so awesome, and you could stop here and it'd still be awesome, but at least put it in a series post so we can all visit when the mood strikes.

I vote for series. Though I would love to see more of Wilderness Bound.

And as for this I think it's a really good look at what Colby must be feeling.
